Virginia voters on Tuesday chose congressional candidate David Brat, an underfunded, tea party-supported economics professor, over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a stunning Republican primary election.

And U.S. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Milford) sees that as a good sign in his race against Republican fundraising juggernaut David Trott.

Foreclosure King Dave Trott wants to oust anti-amnesty Bentivolio. Romney has backed his first RINO challenger.

Bentivolio shouts down Dreamers and tells them to get out of his office. We wont see this from Trott.

Chamber maiden Dave Trott doesn’t even mention immigration on his website.

Apparently Dave Trott is now opposed to amnesty.

I don’t buy sudden conversions. Bentivolio has a history of being anti amnesty.

Bentivolio shouts down dreamers.

There are delusional republicans who say they are against amnesty but open to amnesty to 2 million Dreamers.

Kerry pulls no punches.

Bentivolio also served 3 tours of duty in at least 2 different theaters.

Romney, Adelson and the foreclosure king think Bentivolio has no right to disagree on those issues.

Really all that needs to be said here.

But Trott also showed some strength Tuesday, further solidifying his image as a Republican establishment favorite with an endorsement from former presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

He’s a Paulbot and an incredibility weak incumbent who got elected by accident. I hope he loses a GOP primary before he has a chance to lose a general election (he actually lost in 2012 in the special election for the last couple months of McCotter’s term (to a nobody rat), he won the full term because of favorable redistricting and a rat opponent with a Pakastani name). I don’t give a damn if the “establishment” dislikes him or not.

Right now, I would take a Paulbot over a Rovebot. At least He has a chance of being a representative of the people, while eGOP really does not. I came of age in the 60’s and for the first time, I kind of agree with the phrase, “Down with the Establishment.”

He’s not backed by the open borders chamber of commerce and the moderates with a mouthful of Obama keep screeching about him being a “paulbot” which is a term that seems to mean whatever they want it to mean.

Bentivolio is anti-amnesty-—for now. When L. Ron Paul (who has always supported open borders, as do most Libertarians) gives the signal, Bentivolio (and Amash, and Massey, and maybe Brat?) will start saying that it is Economics 101 that we shouldn’t have barriers to the importation of workers any more than we should have barriers to the importation of raw materials, and the Paulistinians will vote with the liberal Democrats on amnesty just as they do on some other issues.

And while Bentivolio did serve our country honorably and might be the most patriotic reindeer rancher in all of Michigan, that doesn’t mean that he’s an effective politician, much less a strong general-election candidate (as the November 2012 results show).

You’re a “moderate”

Moderates are lying manipulative bottom feeding scum who spend their lives on their knees servicing democrats whenever possible.

That’s me showing utter contempt for your kind.

It means a supporter of Ron Paul and his agenda, which often conflicts with the conservative agenda.

The other (and worse) Paulbot in the MI delegation, Justin Amash, is much more accurately described as a “moderate” than either Auh2 or myself.

Please spare me any more of your disgusting comments about what’s in my mouth.

I am more conservative in my little pinky than you’ll ever be in your entire Paulistinian body.

Hey, Rand the Great, son of L. Ron himself, is pushing hard fir amnesty: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3166595/posts. How long before their suck-ups Amash and Bentivolio follow suit, and declare that amnesty is the “true freedom-based option”?

It’s not to late for you to leave the Ronulan Cult. Better do it now, before you find yourself parroting the new Paultard talking points on open borders, legalized heroin and a nuclear Iran.

Not that crap again, this a publicly viewed DISCUSSION forum. I bet you wouldn't care about how many people I pinged if you had agreed with what I said.

Next tell me to shut up because I'm not from Michigan, because it's not like Justin's sometimes liberal votes effect the entire country or anything, right?

Kerry, Ted Yoho, Paul Broun, Walter Jones are closer to Steve King than the Pauls on immigration.

The first 4 stay in office because their views on invading Syria are popular not because of ongoing Ron Paul backing.

Trott has literally said nothing on immigration until Cantor lost.

My friend Congressman Steve King is a true conservative leader. We worked together on the Farm Bill—see what he has to say:

Mainstream conservative Hero Trey Gowdy on getting undermined by King:

http://blogs.rollcall.com/218/steve-king-dreamers-arent-all-valedictorians-some-are-running-drugs/

In response to King’s comments, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said “reprehensible” and “Did you hear his five minutes?” Gowdy asked a scrum of reporters about King’s statement. ”He took one line from my opening statement about a remedy that lasts a lifetime and lectures me about the rule of law. I was a prosecutor for 15 years.”

http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/23/house-subcommittee-considers-status-of-illegals-brought-to-the-us-as-children/

“When children eat a grape at the grocery store or eat a piece of candy waiting in line before mom or dad pays for it we don’t have them arrested for petty larceny,” he added.

Gowdy and Mulvaney are pro-amnesty. Steve King is so uncouth.

” Here is the letter, signed by Mo Brooks, Lou Barletta, Kerry Bentivolio, Tom Cotton, Walter Jones, Phil Gingrey, Michele Bachmann, John Fleming, Steve King, Ted Yoho, Joe Wilson, Lamar Smith, Steve Stockman, Steven Palazzo, Jeff Duncan and Mike Rogers. Click to enlarge:”

Where is Trey Gowdy the hero? Cantor’s hand picked immigration czar.

“I’m really a Ronald Reagan Republican — I’m not really a Ron Paul person. I respect Ron Paul a great deal,” said Kerry Bentivoli (R-MI), who has libertarian leanings just like the retired Texas congressman who ran for president last year.

It’s good to hear Bentivolio distancing himself from the Paulistinians; he was such a political neophyte when he first ran in 2012, it is possible that when he embraced the Paultards with both arms back then (and he did, and they him) it was more out of ignorance of what Paulbots believe than anyone else.

But until he proves that he’s excised that Paulist tumor from his brain, I’d prefer Trott or some other genuine conservative with Reaganite views.

You're talking about what you think someone might do because they support some of Ron Paul's economic policies. You're assuming that if someone supports some of them, they'll automatically support all of them. In logic terms, you're assuming the converse of an implication.....it doesn't follow.

Anyone who knows Economics at all knows that an unlimited source of cheap labor destroys the supply and demand curve for labor and the system collapses. FWIW, Brat has a 100% score from Numbers USA and he's been the most articulate about the impact caused by the invasion of the US and the negative impact it has for workers.

Brat has absolutely no voting recird on any political issue. We’re all assuming that he will vote 100% consistently with his promises, which my experience with elected officials has been that rarely occurs. We’ll see what happens if and when his Paulistinians overlords issue a diktat on amnesty to aid Prince Rand.

I agree with you that we've been backstabbed so much by supposed constitutional conservatives, and there have been very few without a record to back up their statements that haven't backstabbed us.

I trust Numbers USA. They've stayed very focused on stopping the invasion of the US (their terminology is more polite) and on demanding EVerify as the law. They give Brat a 100% approval rating. Since he's an Economics professor, I'd be hopeful that his view is based on knowledge.

As far as the Ron Paul - Rand Paul situation goes? They need us and we need them at this point. Why? To stop people from voting for a status quo dem or 'pub. Besides that, I don't fear them as much on stopping the invasion as I did before. The situation is now so far out of hand that Rand Paul seems to have taken an "enforcement first" stance.

Rand said Cantor lost because of NSA Spying.
Brat said Cantor lost because of amnesty.

Brat would be thrown out of congress in 2016 much easier than Cantor with 8 terms under his belt.

Brat’s 1 vote is a lot less powerful than the person who sets agenda. Especially in the house.
